It's not clear to me which perl package manager (CPAN?) you tried to install 
it with, but there are some known problems with the CPAN packaging of the 
link checker, and there are some ideas how could possibly be fixed in future 
(hopefully not too distant) releases.

But on the other hand you don't have to use any package manager to install 
it - since you have all the prerequisite packages installed, it should be 
possible just to unpack the tarball and run bin/checklink from there or to 
copy it into the cgi-bin or equivalent directory of your webserver and point 
a browser at it in case you want to use its web interface.
